Optimal life-cycle investment with pay-as-you-go pension schemes: a portfolio approach

  • Willem Heeringa Willem Heeringa

In this paper we show how pay-as-you-go pension schemes impact onthe individual’s optimal investment portfolio. Introducing a pay-as-you-go pension scheme implies that human wealth of young generations is transferred to retired generations. As a consequence, individuals will in general invest less conservatively. These portfolio effects gradually disappear at the end of life.
